Our Baron Fergus and Baroness Helene
Greetings unto the fair populace of Delftwood on this brilliant autumn day!
We have enjoyed a brilliant fall. So many people came out to help at Fall Crown Tournament, it would be impossible to thank them all. It was an exciting day, filled with unexpected upsets and a thrilling final combat. We congratulate our new Prince and Princess, Timothy and Gabrielle.
In case you haven’t heard, Fergus also developed children. Two of our newest members participated in a West Kingdom tradition and had all the people at court help choose their names. Though the names may not be permanent, or pass the College of Heralds, they chose to be Babra ingen Fhearghus and Eamonn mac Fhearghus – daughter and son of our beloved Baron. We wish them well in their heraldic consultation, even if they choose something else to be named in our society.
We are also looking forward to a fantastic winter. Yule looks to be a wonderful event, and we hope many people choose to display their arts at the event. We heartily support Baroness Othindisa in her goal to grow our Yule into a wonderful A&S-centered event with competitions. We encourage everyone in Delftwood to come and to show off their performing arts skills as well.
After that, we will be preparing for the Feast of the Seven Deadly Sins – which will be full of surprises and joy, and Delftwood will welcome her newest peer. We are truly blessed with all the talent we have here.
Yours In Service To The Dream,
Baron Benedict Fergus atte Mede, and Baroness Helene al-Zarqa’
